Question from Annie: I love to bake and I see “refined white sugar” is a no-no...what would you suggest as a replacement for that in say, a cake or cookie recipe?
Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. First of all, in every recipe I use I cut the sugar in half. Sometimes it turns out perfectly all right and perfectly the same, and other times it doesn't. But I don't worry about it. I also think about portion sizes. If it says it makes 35 cookies, I try to make 60 cookies. So, you're reducing, reducing, reducing. You're still enjoying, but you're being thoughtful about how much you're eating.
